It might seem that Anna Lee, the main character in this week's installment of the A&E Mystery Movie, is the twentysomething equivalent of Helen Mirren's Jane Tennison in the Prime Suspect series. Both are female sleuths trying to make a name for themselves in London, but that's where the similarities end. Lee, as played by Imogen Stubbs, is much sassier, a feisty private investigator whose energy and humor make her one of the most ingratiating TV detectives since Columbo.
